Chicken Piccata is a simple classic Italian dish that is traditionally served with veal but in the United States chicken is more commonly substituted. This low carb version uses almond flour and grated Parmesan instead of flour to cut the carbs and add fantastic flavor to this Keto friendly recipe. The lemon caper pan sauce is a perfect way to use our smoky chicken bone broth to bring this bright buttery recipe together. Perfect for a quick dinner you can have a classic Italian meal on the table in less than 30 minutes. The Ketologie Roasted chicken broth not only adds a beautiful golden color to the sauce but it also provides grass fed beef collagen and turmeric making this far superior to traditional chicken stock.
Pro Tip* the key to a successful butter sauce is to remove the pan from the heat before slowly whisking in your butter. If the pan is too hot the sauce will separate and become oily. If your sauce does break you can fix the sauce by turning the heat to low and whisking in 2 tbsp of heavy cream and Parmesan Cheese.
